Ale Association Quests - My Run Down

I am trying to get to Kindred with the Ale Association (the nefarious rivals to the Inn League).  In some ways the AA Rep Quests mirror (darkly) the Inn League quests.  I'll cover all of the quests in more detail in an upcoming podcast but wanted to give you a pattern of AA quests that is working for me.

Start by getting all of the AA quests from Jonar in the bar in Thorin's Gate.  The Quests he gives you (at least the ones I can do right now at Friend level are as follows:  An Inn League Disaster (ILD), An Irritating Initiation (II), Jonar's Special Brew (JSB), Jonar's Special Delivery (JSD), Tainted Mug (TM), and The Draught Drought (DD).  The steps to complete these quests are as follows (Note the JSD quest has a 30 min timer):

1)  Intimidate Oli in the Thorin's Hall Bar three times (II)
2)  Go to Ferin's Court and Ruin the Tasting (ILD - complete)
3)  Ride a horse to Noglond and intimidate Kopur three times (II)
4)  Ride a horse to Gondomon and intimidate Grimar three times (II)
5)  Ride a horse to Duillond
6)  Ride a horse to Needlehome and intimidate Herluf three times (II - complete)
7)  While in Needlehome collect 5 Swamp Gas from Rushock Bog (JSB)
8)  Ride a horse to Hobbiton and go to the party tree.  While you are there deliver the Special Brew (JSD complete) and break on of the kegs (DD)
9)  Ride a horse from Hobbiton to Brockborings and steal the recipe (TM)
10)  Ride a horse to Stock but dismount in Budgeford....break the keg (DD)
11)  Go to Stock and steal the recipe (TM) and break the Keg (DD)
12) Go SW to Woodhall and break the Keg (DD)
13) Go NW to Frogmortton and break the Keg (DD)
14)  Go west to Bywater and break the Keg (DD)
15)  Go SW to Tuckburoug and steal the recipe (TM)
16)  Go NW to Waymet and steal the recipe (TM - Complete)
17) Go West to Sanderson's Farm and get the rotten egg (JSB)
18)  Go south to Michel Delving and break the Keg (DD - Complete)
19)  Swift Travel to Celondim and kill seven slugs, getting their slime (JSB - Complete)
20)  Swift Travel to Thorin's Gate and Turn In Quests

I hope that helps!


  1. Pretty much exactly what I do, except I ride from Gondamon to Celondim to get the slugs before heading out to Needlehole.

    Remember, tho, that you are losing rep with the Inn League as you do these quests. If you want to keep your rep, immediately turn around and do the 4 Covert Rep quests (convince the 4 dwarves to rejoin the Inn League). The guy in Nogolond is currently bugged, and you can do it multiple times to make up the rep.

  2. Just curious, what's the silver cost and reputation gain from doing this circuit?
